Coleman Professional Services has been accredited for a period of three years for its integrated behavioral health, alcohol and other drug, and job development and employment support programs by CARF International. This accreditation decision represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization's substantial conformance to the CARF standards. Coleman has received consecutive CARF accreditation since 1982.
"This achievement is an indication of your organization's dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served. Services, personnel, and documentation clearly indicate an established pattern of practice excellence… We commend your commitment and consistent efforts to improve the quality of your programs and services," CARF President and CEO Brian J. Boon said in the award letter to Coleman.
"I am delighted that Coleman has once again been recognized for its compliance to CARF's strict and high standards," said Nelson Burns, president and CEO of Coleman Professional Services said.
"It is a testimony to the hard work that Coleman's employees do to ensure our clients receive the best possible services that we have consistently been recognized with CARF accreditation. This recognition is for each of them."

Founded in 1966 as the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services.
